Another terror attack foiled against Danish Newspaper....
Gee, they keep trying, no???
A Danish newspaper was shocked Tuesday at revelations of a new plan to attack its offices after it published caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad five years ago, its chief editor said.
Norwegian police announced earlier Tuesday that an Iraqi Kurd in custody in Norway admitted to plotting an attack on Denmark's largest daily, Jyllands-Posten.
"This is not a case we have heard of before," editor in chief Joern Mikkelsen said on the newspaper's website. "As with previous revelations of terror plots against Jyllands-Posten, this is very shocking for the paper's employees and their families. Nonetheless, we feel we are in very good hands with the police and the security police."
The head of the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) said it was collaborating with the Norwegian investigation, adding that Denmark was a prime target for terrorist attacks.
"This is the second time in a very short period that the public has learned that [newspaper] Jyllands-Posten has probably been the target of organized terrorist acts," PET head Jakob Scharf said in a statement. "This naturally illustrates that, among Islamic militants, it is a priority objective to lead terrorist attacks against Denmark and symbols related to the caricature case."
The suspect, named by Norwegian police as Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak, 37, was arrested in Germany on July 8 where he was on holiday with his family. He holds a Norwegian residency permit.
His two suspected accomplices, Mikael Davud, a 39-year-old Norwegian citizen of Chinese Uighur origin, and David Jakobsen, a 31-year-old Uzbek with a legal residence permit in Norway, were arrested the same day near Oslo.
The three men, who were remanded in custody, were suspected of preparing one or several attacks on targets that, until now, police believed to be in Norway.
